A Master Class from Professor Paranormal Loyd Auerbach

A Master Class from Professor Paranormal Loyd Auerbach

July 27, 2020

Our longest episode of season! Join Bridget Marquardt and her special guest Loyd Auerbach, Parapsychologist, professor and author.   As a student of parapsychology and magic, Loyd Auerbach became fascinated by the sometimes overlapping fields of psychic phenomena, paranormal experiences, and the art of illusion. He has become an expert in all of these areas and is both a teacher and entertainer. 

With a master’s degree in parapsychology, he is an adjunct professor at John F. Kennedy University in Orinda, California, and has taught courses in Parapsychology, Science Fiction, Magic, and Mass Media. He also gives public lectures on topics including “Ghost Hunting in the 90s,” “Psychic Dreaming,” “Psychics and Charlatans,” and “Exploring the Real-Life ‘X-Files’: Adventures of a Paranormal Investigator.” This last title refers to Auerbach’s work as founder/director of the Office of Paranormal Investigations, a hotline for calls from people who may have experienced paranormal phenomena.

In addition to these roles, Auerbach has worked as a consultant to television producers in the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and Japan. He has appeared on a number of nationally-distributed television talk shows and magazine programs, including The Today Show, Oprah Winfrey, and Hard Copy. In 1988 he received a credit as a creative consultant for the CBS production The Magic of David Copperfield X: The Bermuda Triangle. Auerbach himself performs as a magician in the San Francisco metropolitan area, including a magic and psychic entertainment presentation called “Séance Fiction Theater.” In addition, he travels with his mentalism show “Professor Paranormal’s Psychic Mind Theater.”

In 1986 Auerbach published his first book, ESP, Hauntings, and Poltergeists. It was noticed due to popularity of the Ghostbusters movie. Auerbach continues writing and releasing books.

Barri Ghai, HELP! My House Is Haunted!!!

Barri Ghai, HELP! My House Is Haunted!!!

July 13, 2020

Hey Everyone! It’s Bridget Marquardt here with a brand new episode of Ghost Magnet! Today’s guest Barri Ghai is a professional paranormal investigator and TV presenter with over 15 years experience. He first became interested in the existence of ghosts from a very early age after personally experiencing supernatural activity. He’s now the star of a hit ghost hunting show in the UK, is married to a witch and and they have 7 girls! Much to unpack on this week’s episode of Ghost Magnet. 

Barri founded the Ghostfinder Paranormal Society in early 2006 with the intention of helping more people understand and find answers to the paranormal, by attempting to gather tangible evidence.

Although many of his childhood experiences were horrific and can only be described as demonic attacks, he still developed a keen interest for ghosts and the paranormal. As a teenager, Barri began his own research looking into famous hauntings and documented cases. He eventually started carrying out his own investigations of local cemeteries and famous landmarks to try and document his experiences and gather evidence. During the course of his childhood, Barri reports to have seen at least four separate entities, and encountered something evil that has continued to make its occasional presence known to him and his family almost thirty years on. 

During his final year at University, Barri saw a young female apparition in his bedroom, which he believes helped focus his interest further and ultimately led to plans to create The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society (GPS).

Since establishing GPS, he has experienced many things which he believes defy logic and scientific reasoning. His personal belief in ghosts, and other supernatural phenomena has fuelled his commitment to one day proving, through the use of science and technology, that ghosts do really exist.

Barri regularly features on television, radio, and in magazines worldwide. He has appeared in many successful TV shows some of which include; Celebrity Haunted Hotel Mansion Live, Celebrity Haunted Hotel Live, My Ghost Story, Ghost Adventures,  Paranormal Investigation: Live and 'Help My house is Haunted’.  Barri is considered one of the UK's leading paranormal investigators and works with some of the best in the field.
